You’ll need: 
  • Banner pieces – I cut 7″x10″ triangles from heavyweight paper, but pieces of burlap, fabric scraps or even drop cloths would also work great! 
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paper plate
  • Twine
  • An apple – choose one with a nice shape!
  • (Optional) Sharpie marker and glitter glue for additional embellishing

Slice the apple cleanly in half to make two stamps.  Pour a small amount of paint on to the paper plate.  Dip the flat side of the apple into the paint and stamp on to the banner piece.  Easy as [apple] pie!

Add Sharpie seeds and glitter glue stems if desired, and allow to dry.  Punch holes in the corners of the banner pieces and tie together with twine.

You could also thread all of the banner pieces on to one long length of twine, but I like the extra character that all of those little knots and strings give to the banner.

Hang and enjoy!  I love it when my boys’ artwork and projects can take center stage in my seasonal decorating arrangements!
